    Hi everybody, I'm new to the forum, but have lurked for some time. The blower motor in my '05 Sport doesn't work unless I stick my hand in to spin it myself; kind of like push starting a motorcycle. I thought I simply needed to replace the motor; however, I saw where the problem for some people is the resistor switch(?).

    NOTE: In May, this problem happened but stopped occurring after a couple days, two weeks ago my A/C would only work on HIGH, and now the motor is out and I have to restart it by hand every time. Any suggestions?

    Thanks man. Ill try that first since I would like to think the motor is still good since it will work after I spin the wheel myself.

    There are 2 set screws that hold the motor perfect upright within the housing. If it gets off kilter, it could be binding up.

    If your motor is only working on high - it is probably the resistor that should be replaced.
    My motor started going out - wouldn't work at all - I could give it a solid whack with my hand or a rubber mallet and it would work for a day or two - but after a couple of weeks I had to replace the motor - you can get a replacement motor for around $40 or so.

    Update: Now my A/C is working perfectly again since yesterday afternoon and I still haven't done anything to it yet.

    It sounds like it's been bound up. Maybe there is debris or dirt around the fan cage or the bearings are dry.
